Dallas Hiatt

Former Durango resident Dallas Hiatt died Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, at a nursing home in Littleton. He was 90.
Mr. Hiatt was born to Earl and Meryl Hiatt on March 22, 1922, in Albion, Ind.
He enlisted in the Marines in 1941 and served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. After the war, he moved to Chicago to study optometry at the University of Illinois, graduating in 1949.
The Hiatt family then moved to Durango, where Mr. Hiatt practiced as an optometrist from 1949 to 1959. His family said he often donated his professional services to needy Durango residents.
While in Durango, he was active at the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks Lodge 507 and Masonic Lodge No. 46. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting and flying his plane in the Durango area, and most weekends were spent at Vallecito Reservoir, boating and fishing with his family.
After leaving Durango, the Hiatts moved to the Denver area, where Mr. Hiatt owned Swigert Brothers Optometry.
Mr. Hiatt was preceded in death by his first wife, Mary Virginia Hiatt; son David Hiatt; and two grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Charlotte Hiatt of Littleton; children Linda Hiatt, Judy Hiatt, Jon Hiatt, Barry Hiatt, Kevin Hiatt and Mary Hiatt Dow, all of the Denver and Littleton areas; seven grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
A funeral with full military honors will be held at 2:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, at Fort Logan National Cemetery, 4400 West Kenyon Ave. in Denver.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to the American Parkinson's Disease Association of the Rockies, 1325 S. Colorado Blvd., Suite 204B, Denver, CO 80222.
